Poured into a pint glass. bb 4/22/13 must be pretty fresh.

A - Small, white foamy head leaving nice laces on the glass. Great deep gold/copper IPA color.

S - Great citrusly hop notes on the nose. Very crisp.

T - Solid hop flavor. Taste outways the smell, great use of bittering hops. Really not getting all that much malt to balance it out, but that is fine with me.

M - Incredibly drinkable for how hoppy the beer is. Carbonation is right on and it leaves a nice grassy hop taste in your mouth after you take a sip.

O - Love it. Oh why oh why are you 16.99 for a sixer!?
